Do you know that voice?
It's a question everyone asks when they see a new animated TV series, feature film, or trailer, and now you can learn more about the voices of your favorite characters.
I Know That Voice is an upcoming documentary that focuses on the people behind the voices of the movie trailers, cartoons, and animated features we grew up with as well as those productions we see today.
This is one documentary that I can't wait to see. The first trailer for I Know That Voice was recently released, featuring talent dating back to Rocky & Bullwinkle (June Foray as the voice of Rocky) as well as legendary voice director Andrea Romano. Foray is over 90 years old and has been voicing characters since she debuted as the 1940s. You will also see voice talent, voice directors, and casting directors from Up, Madagascar 3, Frankenweenie, Futurama, The Looney Tunes Show, Dr. Seuss' The Lorax, and more.
Instead of performing in front of a camera, these Character Approved voice actors add all their personality behind the scenes. Their performances give the animation directors what they need to then create the final visuals. The documentary also delves into the changing landscape of cinematics in video games and how the production of several games is equal to that of a feature film.
